The sensor lab is available to test and calibrate a variety of individual chemical and biological sensors
or complete sensor systems. This fully equipped laboratory is designed to serve as a test platform for sensor
prototypes prior to full-scale field demonstrations and has some unique features:
- A chemical vapor generation system, an aerosol chamber and two environmental chambers.
- The small environmental chamber can be used to evaluate sensors for effects of temperature, humidity
- The large walk-in environmental chamber (11' X 10' X 10') can be used to evaluate sensor systems for
temperature and humidity effects while simultaneously exposing them to test analytes at varying concentrations.
- The laboratory contains a full complement of instruments and equipment necessary for work with chemicals
and biological materials at Biosafety Level 2 (BSL-2), including fume hoods and biosafety cabinets.
